Publisher's Summary

Stephen King returns to The Dark Towerin this second, mesmerizing volume in his epic series. After his confrontation with the man in black at the end of The Gunslinger, Roland awakes to find three doors on the beach of Mid-World's Western Sea, each leading to New York City but at three different moments in time. Through these doors, Roland must "draw" three figures crucial to his quest for the Dark Tower. In 1987, he finds Eddie Dean, The Prisoner, a heroin addict. In 1964, he meets Odetta Holmes, the Lady of Shadows, a young African-American heiress who lost her lower legs in a subway accident and gained a second personality that rages within her. And in 1977, he encounters Jack Mort, Death, a pusher responsible for cruelties beyond imagining. Has Roland found new companions to form the ka-tet of his quest? Or has he unleashed something else entirely? A savage struggle has begun in which underworld evil and otherworldly enemies conspire to bring an end to Roland's search for the Dark Tower.

Set in a world of extraordinary circumstances, filled with stunning visual imagery and unforgettable characters, The Dark Tower series is unlike anything you've ever heard. Here is Stephen King's most visionary piece of storytelling, a magical mix of fantasy and horror that may well be his crowning achievement. Don't miss the other volumes of Stephen King's The Dark Tower.

    Story
    "The best series of all time."

    Upon writing this, I'm on my 8th run through Roland's world. The first
    Book is a little all over the place but the subsequent ones are very
    Cohesive and the over all story is very deep and immersive.

    "excellent story and voice"

    in the first book the reading I found almost too abrasive. in this reading I felt that it flowed very well and that the voices were done well in ability to tell them apart. the story is taking off. a lot more is happening and I can't wait to listen to book 3

    "impressive"

    I found this to be much more enjoyable then the first novel in this series. I was leary about finishing them but after this one I'll see how it ends.

    "Great book"

    It was a little jarring to hear this narrator after listening to the first book on cassette, read by the author. Frank Muller is very overdramatic at times, but you get used to it.

    "Amazing story! "

    In the second book of the dark Tower we find Roland basically dying from an infection. Yet he has to go on... He has a prophecy to fulfill. He has to draw three individuals to help him on his quest to the infamous Dark Tower. Who are they and what are their stories, find out in this book.

    This is my fourth time listening to these books and it's amazing how much foreshadowing there is, weather or not King knew it at the time of writing. Happy reading.

    but still couldn't quit listening.

    "Getting better"

    While the first book left me hanging as many first books in a series are apt to do, this book provided more of a beginning and an end on its own. I will continue on to the next book because now I'm fully interested in the fate of Roland.

    "great story , will keep reading. "

    I have always not been a fan of horror, so stayed away from Steven King. I am glad I caved to peer pressure and tried this and The Gunslinger. look forward to the next book.

    "Stephen King is a storytelling master"

    I re-read this saga a lot. It never fails to amaze. My only criticism is the narrator. I just can't get into his portrayal of the characters.
